How Handwriting Boosts the Brain - WSJ.com:

He cites several studies indicating that good handwriting can take a generic classroom test score from the 50th percentile to the 84th percentile, while bad penmanship could tank it to the 16th. 'There is a reader effect that is insidious,' Dr. Graham says. 'People judge the quality of your ideas based on your handwriting.'"
